Psychotherapy vs Coaching

In a traditional therapy approach we may talk about both current issues and struggles while also exploring feelings related to past hurts and concerns. A traditional therapy approach may go deeper into exploring the cause and effect of past events.

We will use a coaching model if you have specific life and work goals and take a solution-oriented “here and now” approach. I often use a coaching model with parents to help them develop strategies and solutions to specific challenges they are facing within their family.

Psychotherapy and coaching are really two sides of the same coin although they each have times when one is more appropriate than the other. Regardless of approach I will provide support and guidance while acting as a resource along the way.
